broke the story originally. rob, how did they pull this one off? >> well, they went to arbitration. the arbitrator sided with the workers. so the uaw workers got their jobs back, as simple as that. >> but explain that to me, because most places, people watching across america tonight, would say, okay, if i showed up on the job, drunk or high, hung over, caught on my lunch break, doing something that might impair the people around me, or the actual work i'm doing, i would lose my job. so what do the unions have that others don't have that get them a second chance at a job like this? >> well, this is a situation where chrysler fired the workers. they were embarrassed by the video of course. it went national. it went international. they fired the 13 guys pretty quickly, because they wanted to send a message that, you know, this is not the image that chrysler wants. so they fired these guys quickly. then it goes through the arbitration process. took two years. chrysler hired a bunch of lawyers, i assume. the uaw hired a bunch of lawyers, i assume. they battle it out in court. the arbit
agency fees does is it robs a union of the ability to clip dues off of all of the members who benefit from a union contract. instead of having a union contract where everybody who is covered from it has to pay a certain amount of money to the people negotiating the contract, people that are in the bargaining unit don't have to pay money. only those who wish to so it makes it difficult for unions to maintain themselves and have the resources for bargaining, politics and other forms of representation. so that's what really happens. what winds up happening in right-to-work states is that union density winds up being dramatically lower such as in the south. what epi found about a year ago is on average workers in right-to-work states, since there is lower union density they have less resources wind up making about $6,000 less a year than workers in states that are nonright to work. >> eliot: let me try -- you're saying so much. i want to distill it down and break out a couple of points. first, this is not a right-to-

a great relationship to banking. the bank robber willie sutton. they asked him why he robbed the banks at least reputedly and he said that's where the money is. if we're going to cut let's go where the money is. in the military budget, particularly in that part of the military budget unrelated to legitimate national security needs, unrelated to the need to protect people who really are in trouble. we are still fully stocked to wen a thermonuclear war with the soviet union long after there isn't one. we are still protecting germany, italy, england, and austria from staalin and his successors even though they are now strong enough to meet a threat which in fact doesn't exist. i just had my very able aid marcus rose check this for me. over the last ten years we have spent $3.8 billion in medicare. that's true. during that same period we spent $5.6 billion on the military. the military has been going up fast faster and it includes an awful lot of expenditure, unnecessary. we're reading today that canada is recoring whether they're going to buy the f-35. the f-35 is a very, very well concei

, they break into your cars and homes and they rob you and they commit violent crimes. now if we treated this as a health issue they wouldn't be doing that. you know. if we enabled a way for them to get what they need to manage their addictions, then they wouldn't have to rob and steal from others. to manage that addiction. >> bill: i -- >> i can't tell you how happy i am that you got the reference to the wire. i hope everybody got that because my favorite story line was when bunny opened up hamster dam and he set up an area for people to buy sell used drugs in this one area of baltimore and crime everywhere else plummeted. plummeted. i thought it was a really smart way to show just how bad and how futile that war on drugs can be in a city like baltimore. >> now although that piece of it was fiction it makes a lot of sense! it makes a lot of sense. because think about it. the guns that permeate our communities today, they're tools of the drug trade. that's all they are. because when i first started working undercover in

for the initiative offered by senator rob portman. lawmakers can adopt a version of the so-called dollar rule to address the 2011 debt ceiling. policymakers could agree at the beginning to cover that here -- year's budget. they could -- adopting some form of this rule would be a good safeguard. i appreciate his comments. isn't this exactly what we did that now everyone is trying to get out of? we have a dollar of spending reductions. 1.2 is already in place. the other is in the sequester. isn't that what we did? if that isn't a good idea, why are you and the others now suggesting it is not a good idea? >> let me say a few things. first, the broad context. we need to get rid of the debt ceiling law. it is agonistic. we need to get rid of it. i suggest that some version of the dollar for dollar rule should be incremented. at least considered. it does not need to be one-for- one. it could be 50%. that is not going forward. my view is that we need to nail down how we can get to fiscal sustainability. get rid of the debt ceiling law. we need some form of budget rule to make sure that some discipli
of the country they are subjected to the law. >> steve: you are saying if we went to britain and robbed a bank because we are from out of town we are okay. >> gretchen: he thought we should attempt to call kensing ton palace. we'll talk politics instead. a well known senator who surprisingly decided to resign and gave parting advice when he did. we are talking about senator jim demint. >> it didn't win in south carolina and the republicans that were eec lected run on limited government and less taxes. they shouldn't give in to that and the princele is wrong . the president doesn't have a plan. all it is is a political trophy to the left. we need to do what is good for america. taxing the rich is not going to help the middle class. >> brian: he has four years left on a second term. he's done more for the tea party movement. you talk about marco rubio and senator cruz in texas. >> steve: ram paul. >> brian: ram paul. i am stunned he would leave in a position of leadership and a go to guy to go to the heritage foundation. >> steve: the heritage foundation is a think tank and in the u.s. senate he

house, rob neighbors. what is his job? guest: behind closed doors, the staff members have a lot more influence because some of the budget issues are so minuscule and then the legislative issues have to be drafted in legislative language. when there are no cameras or microphones, the negotiators are really talking turkey about what concessions can you live with and how can i sell this to my based? he has to be an honest broker and he has to keep lwaks forget -- leaks from getting in the press or no one would trust him. he does not let things get in the press the next day. host: he has to go to the white house and say this is what they are saying, this is what they can deal with. guest: yes. in the past when the negotiations happened in 1990, it comes down to a few people in a room. this is not considered democratic by many rank-and- file. year from an independent senator sanders in vermont saying we have our own ideas but when we are up against a deadline and the clock is ticking, it often boils down to sometimes a group of eight, as in what happened in 1990. sometimes it might just b
it up front. i say that's an invitation for someone to rob the church. i say you should take the offering and walk its -- lock it up. i believe in concealing carry. i have a concealed and carry. when people have a concealed carry, somebody at that school might have been able to deter this. if the federal government wants to help the schools, they should give the funding. they need to fund -- every school in the united states should be funded with money from the federal government so there can be a full-time police officer on staff in every building in every school of the united states. host: on twitter -- president obama talk about meaningful action last night. on the washington post, they're asking what does that mean? the wall street journal has an opinion piece as well responded to the shootings in connecticut. herman is an independent caller in louisiana. what's your opinion? caller: when you have a gun free zones, you advertise to these mentally ill people that there's nobody there that is armed and nobody can stop them. an intruder with a gun. host: what would you do? c
. it means literally robbing peter to pay paul. shifting the money around. so that you can actually keep paying the bills before you hit the ceiling. all in all, i can't remember an end of a year, suzanne, when we've had two so serious issues affecting the u.s. economy all at the same time. >> it is worrisome. i wonder, richard, do we have any sense of how the markets, the global markets, are even reacting to the potential, the possibility that we'd go over the cliff? >> reporter: yes. at the moment, it is quite clear they are holding their nose from the stench of politics, and they are believing that politicians will do the right thing. i was talking to one u.s. congressman today. in fact, you must have talked to senators and congressmen, and everybody says the same thing. in the final analysis, the right thing will be done. both on the cliff and the ceiling. the problem is, a lot of damage can and will be done before it takes place. and there's always the very real risk, as we saw last year, in the ceiling crisis, as we saw with t.a.r.p. three or four years ago when the house didn't pa
look forward to working with you. i now recognize my distinguished colleague, rob andrews, a senior democratic member of the subcommittee, for his remarks. >> good morning again, mr. gotbaum. thank you for being with us. and for your service to our country. you are running a very important agency and i know you are very dedicated to that task. it is good you are here this morning to answer the committee's questions. 10 million americans benefit from a system that has served this country for many decades very well. it is a system where pensions and other benefits are provided, where small business people, contractors, trucking companies, markets, supermarkets, and others, get together and pool their resources and share costs in order to provide pensions and other employee benefits. this is what is known as the multi employer system. the multi employer system, in all cases, involves a collective bargaining agreement that sets the terms and conditions for benefits that will be given. the system has worked extraordinarily well, and it is the system that 10 million americans rely upon fo
would throw economy back into a deep recession, there would be nothing that would rob more americans and hurt our most vulnerable citizens more than being -- having their house go back underwater because of a rise in interest rates, or that potential of a job disappear because an employer decides to end up no longer active, or that unemployment benefits don't get extended because we chose to punt rather than deal with this issue. and, again, we go over a cliff, and if the chances are only 10% that this throws us back into a deep recession, unlike in the past, unlike the fiscal crisis of 2008, we don't have extraordinary measures of stimulus or the fed being able to dramatically lower interest rates. so i believe, mr. president, that we do need balanced, responsible, at least $4 trillion deal. a deal, again, that i believe counts the cuts we've already made, that adds additional real revenue. and again, as i mentioned earlier, i think the president has started too low in terms of the amount of revenue we need. we took $4.5 trillion out of the revenue stream over the last ten years. i
are released. one of them actually gets released and goes straight to rob a bank. you know, you're hoping at least the people they're releasing are reich low level kind of petty crime guys at the very least that they're not sending out bank robbers. what's happening here? >> i think that is the problem. we're talking about low level offenders in this case. but reality is low level offenders, we really got to ask ourselves, how many times has that low level offender offended and that what is the likelihood they will reoffend and commit more serious crimes? i really think we need to and closely that policy and how that may impact our safety in the future. >> juliet: here is what the lane county, oregon sheriff had to say about this. everybody we're releasing is dangerous to society. we're having to choose which ones to keep and which to let out that's scary. >> it certainly is. it really speaks to nome the economy and the challenges law enforcement face and has faced since 2008. >> juliet: how bad has it gotten? >> bad. massive layoffs throughout the country. in my home state, we've had sig
goes to rob one of these homes that they know they don't have guns, let's say something horrible happens, do those homeowners then have a lawsuit against the newspaper? >> you know, i don't necessarily think so. but i do think it would be smart for the homeowners and the gun owners to give notice to the newspaper that they fear for their security and their safety, that of their families and they would ask their -- the names and addresses be unpublished for purposes of safety. that's the minimum they can do at this point and ask for a written response from the newspaper. >> gretchen: very interesting. let's read the statement. this is from the journal news, the newspaper. the massacre in newtown, connecticut remains top of mind for many of our readers. our readers are understandably interested to know about guns in their neighborhood. we possibilitied the names and addresses of residents who are licensed to own hand guns through routine freedom of information law public records request. michael, that makes -- does that implicitly assume that anybody who owns a gun is going to go o
